New Inter signing, Samuel Eto’o, believes that good times are on the way for the defending champions.
Eto’o scored on his league debut, but Inter had to settle for a 1-1 draw with unfancied Bari.
”My first adventure at the Meazza stadium has gone really well, better than I expected,” said the former Barcelona star. ”I haven’t trained with the team that much but I think it has gone well.
”I take the opportunity to thank the fans for the trust they have placed in me and I am certain that in the next few games I will repay them.”
By dropping two points, Inter fell behind Milan and Juventus as both title rivals won their opening games.
Meanwhile, the club remain on the lookout for a playmaker after failing to prise Dutch star Wesley Sneijder away from Real Madrid.
Inter and Real had reportedly reached an agreement for Sneijder to move to the San Siro, only for the Dutch international to change his mind.
The defending Serie A champions had also previously failed in their attempts to sign Chelsea midfielder Deco.
Reports in Italy have now linked Sampdoria’s Antonio Cassano with the Nerazzurri, but Inter president Massimo Moratti appears in no hurry to spend again.
”The fans want a playmaker and we need to find a playmaker,” Moratti said. ”But we must find the right one otherwise you risk making a mistake.
”We have a coach (Jose Mourinho) that must build a team and we will have to try to take a player that he considers to be a better fit for the team.”
Inter signed Lucio, Samuel Eto’o, Diego Milito and Thiago Motta earlier this summer.
